[SOLVED] Pacman error: File exists in fileystem

Hey there.

This morning, when starting up my system which I have left yesterday shutdown without any troubles I ran into some xorg-related issues. Xorg was freezing and not recocnysing my second screen which is connected via displayport and daisy chaining properly anymore.

This is why I tried to update the system and see if that solves the problem, when I ran into another problem:

(47/47) checking for file conflicts                [######################] 100%
error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
python-pyqt5: /usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/PyQt5/__pycache__/__init__.cpython-37.pyc exists in filesystem
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

This is strange. Because I am quite sure that I allways took care to propperly install all packages via pacman. I have not installed pip.

Because of the dependencies of python-pyqt5, removing the package would break the following

checking dependencies...
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: backintime-git: removing python-pyqt5 breaks dependency 'python-pyqt5'
:: python-qtconsole: removing python-pyqt5 breaks dependency 'python-pyqt5'
:: spyder3: removing python-pyqt5 breaks dependency 'python-pyqt5'

I have tried to overwrite the package explicitly via:

$ sudo pacman -S python-pyqt5
[sudo] password for user: 
resolving dependencies...
looking for conflicting packages...

Packages (1) python-pyqt5-5.11.3-3

Total Installed Size:  23.14 MiB
Net Upgrade Size:       0.10 MiB

I´d be thankfully for any advide here. I am not certain if I should use the overwrite force flag here.

Don't use the force, use common sense.

Hi,
$ sudo pacman -Syu --overwrite /usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/PyQt5/__pycache__/__init__.cpython-37.pyc
Have a look on this pacman's new feature

Oh, I am sorry hmm My bad. However thanks for linking, which I didn´t come across by myself. That worked out. No package was using the file as described in the respective wiki description.
